Château Léoville Poyferré Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

$115

Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others, this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral, supple, Margaux-like style, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout. This rich, powerful, broad beauty should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and last for two decades.

Today is Chinese lunar new year in LA! Gotta pop a nice one. Dark inky purple color, not showing a bit of aging at all. Fine leather, mushrooms, forest floor, smoked bacon, graphite, herb, not much fruit character on the nose but mostly are black fruits, also mixed with some sweet cinnamon. Tannins are not fading at all, very young, very dry on the palate, chewy. Some tobacco leaves and dark chocolate as well. 30+ seconds finish. Still has decade to go. Love it! 13.5% alc. 2004 vintage

Another great btl of this wine & one of the better drinking 04 Bordeaux. This had notes of red berry, currant & plum fruits with cedar, leather, licorice & tobacco. Full bodied with good length.

This was showing well with lots of dark red fruits, forest floor, sweet spices & tobacco. I would give it a few more years in the cellar to shed some of its tannin structure.

Wow! Great bottle! 45+ minutes open in the bottle and could use more. Needs a decanter as there was a ton of sediment. Dark purple color. Nose filled with black cherry, tar, and cedar. Nice French terroir on the palate with lush fruit and smoke. Tasted higher in OH than the listed 13.5%, which leads me to believe it has many years left. Great, lengthy finish. I can see this getting better with more age.
